This is already a few years old, but I stumbled upon it today and was simultaneously captivated and depressed.
Here’s the inimitable Ian Svenonius (best known as vocalist of Nation of Ulysses, The Make-Up and, more recently, Chain and The Gang) conducting a somewhat meandering and oft-bizarre interview with Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth during the summer of 2012. Considering everything that’s happened since this interview with Sonic Youth, it’s hard not to read into some of the answers here.
Even as much as I stopped following Sonic Youth’s music after, say, Goo, I still find Kim and Thurston to be entirely fascinating and relatable people. It’s striking how goddamn cool Kim is here.
Anyway, I enjoyed it. Thought I’d share it for those who — like me — slept on it when it was new.
